Details
Head Start, vocational training and day care services became basic community action services in the 1960's. These services are still offered today but have continually changed to successfully meet the needs of a changing community. The comprehensive services of the Head Start Program have no equal. Children and families receive educational services and literacy training, dental and medical services for children who range in age from birth to five years, transportation on buses to Head Start Centers, classrooms on public school campuses, and dentist offices, speech therapy and services to meet the needs of children with disabilities, social and emotional developmental services, nutritional food for children, and nutritional training for parents. These are but a few of the services delivered each day in Head Start. Head Start addresses all of the areas children need to be successful in school and in life
